Wii virtual console releases for this week: NEOGEO fighters edition
Outlining the Wii virtual console releases for the week of 10/8.
As promised, Nintendo has rolled out a brand new Virtual Console category today. NEOGEO titles will now be available for download for 900 Wii points each and to celebrate, Nintendo has released three today--all of which are fighters. Cheesy box art not included.
- Fatal Fury (1991, NEOGEO, 900 Wii points)--One of the original games in the fighting genre, Fatal Fury gained much attention for its unique gameplay that allowed fighters to switch between two planes, thus dodging attacks.
- World Heroes (1992, NEOGEO, 900 Wii points)--This fighting game based its characters on historical figures all throughout time and had them square off. Highlighting the game is a popular Death Match mode where a variety of weapons can be used.
- Art of Fighting (1992, NEOGEO, 900 Wii points)--Art of Fighting was one of the first fighting games to introduce brand new gameplay mechanics such as "desperation attacks" and a zoom and scaling camera system that allowed for more elaborate movement onscreen.
